Samstag, 28. Mai 2011

jab29 - The Journal of Artists' BooksThe Jour­nal of Ar­tists’ Books pro­vi­des a plat­form for both theo­reti­cal and crea­ti­ve ex­pres­si­on. As a fo­rum for the stu­dy of ar­tists’ books, JAB pu­blishes cri­ti­cal and theo­reti­cal ar­ti­cles, re­views of ar­tists‘ books and ex­hi­bi­ti­ons, and com­men­ta­ry on con­fe­ren­ces and and other book art-related ac­tivi­ties. JAB al­so re­gu­lar­ly show­ca­ses crea­ti­ve work in the form of ar­tists‘ state­ments and artist-designed pa­ges and covers.

As a book art pro­ject its­elf, each is­sue of JAB em­bo­dies an in­te­rest in all as­pects of the pro­duc­tion of the jour­nal, in­corpo­ra­ting dif­fe­rent de­sign ele­ments for each is­sue and, whene­ver pos­si­ble, JAB staff do all the prin­ting of the jour­nal. JAB al­so so­me­ti­mes in­clu­des va­rious artist-created in­serts and book­lets or has had the co­vers letterpress-printed by the de­si­gning ar­tist. JAB is pu­blished twice a ye­ar in the spring and fall at The Co­lum­bia Col­le­ge Cen­ter for Book and Pa­per Arts.
